But the guy can write fiction too! Trial and Terror is a great thriller/mystery, taking a hundred twists and turns through the life of Summer Neuwirth. Summer is a Public Defender with issues. Lots of issues. Starting with getting her defendant off. Then finding out that maybe that wasn't the best thing to do. Her mother is missing, the prosecutor's been killed... but yet, there's more. Nothing is what it seems, even the hunky investigator assigned to work with her has secrets. You'll have to read to see how they all play out, but trust me - they do all come together, in ways you never expected.
All in all, a very good read. I liked his other fiction book, Virtually True, even better, but this is great if you want a nice solid mystery/thriller to keep you guessing throughout.
The main character is subjected to an extraordinarily high amount of abuse and insults.
At times it felt as if this wasn't a finished product. The flow was not only inconsistent, it was also jumpy between chapter changes. On a more personal level I think it is totally unrealistic to assume Summer would go along with the demands of her stalker, especially after her personal experiences. However the end of the book redeemed that issue for me and although a little rushed it made complete
I also didn't feel as if the secrets of the main characters past had been delved into enough to give the reader a clear picture of what happened. That of course might be the subject of a second book.
All in all it wasn't a bad liitle story, it just seemed to shout tall and walk small.
I received a free copy of this book for my review.
And the client, once free, begins to stalk Summer .... tempting her with hints that he knows something very important about her past.
Her next case is to defend a woman she knows is innocent ...and if Summer fails, her client will go to death row.
There is so much that goes on ... Summer's mother is missing .... Her police office father, now deceased, was involved with a serial killer who may or may not be dead .... Summer's assault and rape .... and a somewhat relationship with her investigator.
There are so many characters to try to keep track of ... and most of them have no back story. They are just.. there.
The book had a lot of potential, but it didn't seem to come together in a cohesive manner. The ending had a twist, but it was like the author got tired of writing and just ended the story. The book lacked logic and was hard to overlook,
I was really hoping to like it more than I did. 3 Stars.
My thanks to the author / Wayzgoose Press / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

This was pretty good. The odd ending came too fast and lacked "unfolding". It didn't flow. It was disjointed. The book lacked logic but was still entertaining.Published 15 months ago by DebiPeck

Good short read, didn't expect twist at end. Did not see it coming. Truth be told was blind sided with end result.Published on March 2, 2013 by Jay Perez
